Abstract

The aim of the study was to assesses the preparedness of Chinese Nursing students in cardiopulmonary resuscitation from selected sections of Weifang University of Science and Technology.  This assessment entails the identification of the preparedness of Weifang University of Science and Technology nursing students to perform Basic life Support in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation when needed in the university, community, and hospital setting.

Aim: The primary aim of this research was to assess the perception of Chinese nursing students on basic life support. The specific objective of this study was to evaluate the level of Chinese Nursing students when it comes to Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation preparedness in order to determine their capability during emergency situations. This study was focused on 309 Chinese Nursing students from various levels of education at Weifang University of Science and Technology, a provincial public undergraduate and tertiary vocational college in Weifang, Shandong, China.

Scope and Limitation of the Study: This study focused on the preparedness of Chinese nursing students to perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. The study was conducted at Weifang University of Science and Technology focusing on 309 Chinese Nursing students from different levels of education such as Associate Degree, Bachelor's, Master's Degree, and PhD degrees.

Research Design: The researchers used descriptive nonparametric and Qualtrics online survey tools to assess the perception of the respondents on critical steps on basic life support critical steps and whether it is important or not important. Online perceived “Performance   Evaluation   Tool” was used to assess respondents’ perceived performance on Critical Steps of Basic Life Support in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation.

Results: Mainstream of the Chinese nursing students perceived can perform the critical steps of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation with a mean score of 97.31 percent while the ones who cannot perform is 2.69 percent.

Conclusion: Chinese nursing students' preparedness is essential in emergent Basic Life Support - Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. The mean score for parameters on critical step perceived can perform with a score of 97.31 percent. This high percentage of perceived performance can help the chance of survival and this perception can strengthen the Chinese students to do their task in emergency situations.
